We like to think we’re pretty easy going at CleverEgg, but if you’re loking from something more “concrete” about a working relationship – read on
We generally work remotely from our offices or given location. We are always available via Slack, and/or email. We can factor in time to come to your offices for face-to-face meetings.
Work done is charged at an hourly rate, however we can provide quotes if you are looking for a “by-project” basis. There may be a small fee for this, however we will advise of that before undertaking anything for you.
We are upfront and honest about judging how long a piece of work will take and will make suggestions on how to get best value for your money. We like to follow the principals of agile development and will typically work in 1-2 week sprints with continuous test builds so you can see how your project progresses.
Project payment terms are broken down on total value. Your invoices and contract will give you specifics. However, we generally stick to the following as a base-line:
- <3 days: Invoiced accordingly. Payment due on receipt
- 3-5 days: 50% on start, 50% on completion
- 5-10 days: 30% on start, 70% on completion
- >10 days: 25% on start, 25% at a defined midpoint (usually first prototype build), 50% on completion
All invoices are due within 7 calendar days of receipt unless otherwise specified in the invoice. We will never work for equity or profit-share.
Once a project is complete, we offer retainer-based services in which discounted rates are available. These retainers are paid for in advance on the last day of the previous billing cycle. Arrangements for “rollovers of allocation” can be made. If more work is required, hours can be added on at the same cost and will be charged independently of the Retainer Invoice.
